We like to say that Sandy Springs food is off the chain because so many unique restaurants here are local through-and-through. You can play video games while drinking a craft cocktail with a burger and tots at Battle and Brew, a gamer bar. In the heart of Sandy Springs, Kaiser’s Chophouse, an inspired collaboration from esteemed chefs Peter Kaiser and Kevin Rathbun, focuses on sourcing the highest quality and freshest ingredients served to guests in a luxurious yet comfortable environment. Il Giallo Osteria and Bar is a partnership between Chef Jamie Adams and Leonardo Moura and their goal is to transport you to a little piece of Italy. Chef Jamie has a loyal following from devotees of both his food and his work on The Food Network’s “Chopped” series. And Chef William Sigley, along with partner Jason Sheetz, own both local favorites Hammock’s Trading Company, a cool seafood bar, and Under The Cork Tree, which features the exotic and bold flavors of the Mediterranean and an extensive wine list.
If your interest in the culinary arts is of a more hands-on variety, hit the Heritage Sandy Springs Farmers market from April to December; check out North Georgia’s finest handcrafted artisan cheeses at Calyroad Creamery; spice up your life at Penzey’s Spices or indulge in the delicious array of gourmet goodies at Di Amano Chocolate.
